    To win a basketball game, you need to score. In order to score, your players need to be able to quickly read the defense, react immediately, and use the most effective move possible for that situation. The Read and React system ties these two man reads into a seamless offense that can be adjusted to any set, formation, type of player, or style of play. Once you’ve mastered the framework, you can customize Read and React to fit your personnel and the style of play your team needs to be successful. The Read and React offense is the best way to do this because it is a principled framework that gives your players the tools they need to anticipate the actions of the defense and respond with the best possible move. It is a system that can be drilled to the point of habit. It’s like jazz; the same rules are used throughout, but the songs always come out a bit differently (and keep the defense guessing). In this course you get 3 hours, 27 minutes of video. You’ll see 28 variations that will add some additional dimensions to your Read & React, and your offense will continue to improve.

    This course contains 35 base R&R Entries, plus lots of options from those starting points. When all is said and done, with the options, you’ll have 110 Quick Hitter Entries. Of the 110, there are at least 30 Entries for every formation – 5 OUT, 4 OUT, or 3 OUT. No matter what your formation preference, you’ll have plenty of options. Plus, there are 17 Baseline In Bounds Quick Hitters. Remember, the Read & React can help you communicate complicated five-player actions with very few words - and these 128 quick hitters will help train your players to string the layers together in increasing complexity.

    During the summer of 2010, we held a few clinics for those coaches already running the Read & React. One of the two major themes was Practice Planning – how to implement the Read & React. So, we decided that Coach TJ Rosene of Emmanuel College (2009 NCCAA National Champions) should simply run a practice. Coach Rosene never strays far from the Reaction Drills and Reaction Habits that run the Read & React. He incorporates them in everything that he does. If he’s focusing on defense, the offensive component is the Read & React. If he’s working on transition, the transition is going to end in the Read & React. If he’s warming up or just getting in shots, he’s always doing it out of the R&R Reaction Drills. In doing so, Coach Rosene sends a clear message to his team: This is how we play. This is what we do. This is who we are. With this being Coach Rosene’s third season with the Read & React, you’re going to see players who have two years of the R&R under their belt, some with one, and some who are learning it for the first time. This is a real practice in real time – nothing is staged.

    Coach Rick Torbett is known worldwide for the development of the Read and React Offense, a system for implementing 5-player coordination without the use of set plays.
    This course is the first in a series of eight practices that Coach Rick Torbett directed for a youth team. Even though youth players are demonstrating, you can tweak certain amounts of almost every drill to fit the level you are coaching. You can link these into a series of complete practice plans or mix-and-match to create your own practice plans!
    The drills you'll learn in this online course focus on team coordination and tempo control in the Read & React offense. The drills that the team is running become the offense. There are no drills in this course that do not directly relate to what your players learn while operating the Read and React Offense.

    We know that our Youth Read & React coaches are pressed for practice time. Many of you are lucky to get two 90-minute practice sessions a week with your team, and are trying to figure out how to put in all the Read & React has to offer during that short amount of time. This video shows how Rick would install Layers 1-6 & 17 with a youth team in one 90-minute practice. He uses demonstrators who are between the ages of 9-12, and establishes the framework for the offense that can easily be built upon in subsequent practices.
